One Million Moms for Gun Control Rally in Jersey City


January 26 was a freezing cold day, but that didn't stop about 200 citizens from gathering in Lincoln Park in Jersey City to hear elected officials and others talk about sensible gun laws.

Not a single speaker spoke about repealing the Second Amendment.

Not a single speaker proposed taking guns away from responsible citizens.

Instead, they spoke about the children of Newtown and countless other tragedies that have been precipitated by this nation’s obsession with guns.

It took a generation to change the tobacco culture in America. It may take longer to change the faux machismo worship of killing machines. But we have to start some time. That time is now.

Below are links to the videos of remarks from the speakers at the Jersey City Rally.

  1. Repealing the 2nd Amendment and taking guns from responsible citizens is next week.

    When they moved smokers to the back of the airplane, not a single speaker proposed banning them from the plane altogether.
